Get Your Toys Squeaky Clean: Top Tips for Toy Care

Get Your Toys Squeaky Clean: Top Tips for Toy Care

So, you've had a wild night (morning? afternoon?) of passion with your favourite sex toy. You've summited the peak of pleasure and now it's time to come back down to reality. But wait, before you kick back and relax, there's one important thing you need to take care of: cleaning your sex toys. Yes, we know it's not the most glamorous task, but it's a necessary one. After all, you wouldn't want any unwanted visitors (we're talking about bacteria, people!) hanging around. So, grab your favourite products and let's dive into the world of sex toy hygiene.

1. Wash before and after use!

It's not one or the other - every time you put your toys away, they should be clean and dry. And before you use them, same: your toys should be newly clean and dried -- before you lube them up, that is.

2. Read the Manual (Yes, Really!)

Before you start scrubbing away, take a moment to read the manual (if your toy came with one). Each toy is unique and may require specific cleaning instructions. Plus, it's always good to brush up on your toy knowledge. Who knows, you might learn a thing or two!

3. Don't Forget the Batteries

Got a battery-operated toy? Well, don't forget to remove those batteries before cleaning. You wouldn't want to accidentally turn your toy on while it's submerged in water. Trust us, it's not a pretty sight (or sound). Once the batteries are out, you can proceed with the cleaning process. 

4. Mixed Material Toys: Handle with Care

If you're the proud owner of something with multiple materials, listen up and refer back to tip #2: read your toy's manual! The Magic Wand, for instance, has a plastic head that can be washed with water. The body/handle, on the other hand shouldn't be put under running water: there are buttons that could let water in the motor compartment!

5. Washing methods

Soap and Water: The Classic Combo

When it comes to cleaning your sex toys, soap and water are your best friends. Just make sure to use a mild, unscented soap to avoid any unwanted irritation. Gently lather up your toy, paying extra attention to any nooks and crannies. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry with a clean towel. Voila! Your toy is squeaky clean and ready for round two. Cleansers like Green Foaming Toy Cleaner and Jo Misting Toy Cleaner that are made for sex toy cleaning do are ideal - but any soap that doesn't irritate your privates should do the trick.

Boil them

Boiling your sex toys is a surefire way to kill any lingering bacteria or germs. It's like giving them a one-way ticket to germ heaven. Plus, it's a great way to sanitize toys made of silicone, glass, stainless steel, and other non-porous materials (With no electrical components). Just remember, not all toys are created equal, so always check the manufacturer's instructions.

UV Sterilize

UV sterilization kills up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, ensuring that your toys are squeaky clean and ready for action. Unlike some cleaning methods that can damage your toys or leave behind residue, UV sterilization is gentle yet powerful, giving you peace of mind. *Don't forget to wash and dry your toys to get rid of any residue before using your UV Sterilizer :).

6. Storage: Out of Sight, But Not Out of Mind

Once your toys are clean and dry, it's time to think about storage. Avoid tossing them in a drawer where they can collect dust and lint (nobody wants that!). Instead, opt for a dedicated storage bag or box. Some toys even come with their own fancy storage cases. Not only will this keep your toys clean, but it will also help prolong their lifespan.

And there you have it, friends! A crash course in sex toy cleaning. Remember, taking care of your toys is not only hygienic but also ensures they'll be ready for action whenever you are. So, next time you're getting down and dirty, don't forget to show your toys some love and give them a good scrub. Happy cleaning!
